Rails Developer

POSTED May 5th

London, UK

We’re looking for a Ruby on Rails developer to join our team. We work remotely and we’d love to hear from you if you’re looking for an exciting new challenge!
  • We’re based in the UK but work remotely with team members in USA, Brazil and Australia

Job Description
You'll be working in a small team from day one, with a focus on delivering value on a daily basis. You'll own functionality from start to finish, from helping flesh out new features, through design, test and finally deploying your code to production.

Our tech team is small so you’ll need enthusiasm to learn and work across all product areas; from DevOps to front end. As part of a small team you’ll also get to influence our product and see your work immediately impacting our customers’ success and our business.

You will be joining a fully remote team, so strong written communication skills and self-motivation are a must, as is the desire to continually improve our development processes.

Contract rate: £2,500 / month

Skills & Requirements
  • 2+ years of Ruby on Rails experience
  • Javascript (we use Backbone & plain JS)
  • Desire to learn new skills
  • Self motivated & organised
  • Passionate about creating functional, tested, resilient software
  • Remote working
  • Be located +/- 4 hours of GMT
  • You will be joining a small, fully remote team, so strong spoken & written communication skills (English) and self-motivation are a must, as is the desire to bring best practices and process improvements into our organisation

Additional experience that would be beneficial
  • Know your way around AWS
  • Agile development workflow, including pull request & code review. 
  • Test Driven Development
  • Knowledge of relational databases (MySQL)
  • Performance optimisation
  • Docker/Kubernetes

Our Tech
We’re hosted on AWS and built using Javascript (vanilla), Backbone, Bootstrap, Rspec, Cucumber, Jasmine, Git & Github. We practice Continuous Delivery using some great tools to help us, there’s more about our workflow and tools in this blog post. As a tech team we work with the tools that let us be productive. If that sounds like your cup of tea, get in touch.

What happens next?
Please send your CV & why you’d like to work with us to (no agencies, please). 

We’ll let you know if we’d like a video call to get to know you and after that we’ll invite a shortlist of applicants to perform a short online test. The last step will be an informal chat with the rest of the team.
